east and continue to project american power. do you view it that way? >> the first obama administration was also not an administration saying let's go find some place to bomb. neither, for that matter, was president bush's eight years. we fought the wards that we felt were necessary. president bush worked hard to try to solve other problems through diplomatic means. and so i think it's a little too stark to make this kind of characterization. i, as you well know, always believed that we should try to avoid war. we should be willing to talk to friends and willing to talk to enemies. and try to find a solution that's peaceful. but when do you find it is necessary to use military force, use it with a clear political objective in mind and use it for a decisive result. that's the kind of attitude that chuck haiglogical bring to the equation. we will be careful. he will give the president his best advice on the use or non-use of military force, how to solve the problem diplomatically. i'm sure he will be a great companion with mr.er can any that regard. it's a good team. i think it's a very,

the obama administration is coming for their guns? cnn national political correspondent jim acosta has been looking into that. and this is something that has spanned the obama administration. you hear from so many gun owners who say, he's going to take our guns away. he says no. >> we've been hearing this for year, joe. you've been to these gun stores, i've been to these gun stores. the president addressed this fear today in his news conference and he accused the gun industry of trying to exploit it. take a look inside any firearms shop these days and it's clear nothing sells guns like the fear of gun control. >> every time the president or senator feinstein comes out and talks about restricting second amendment rights of u.s. citizens, the phone rings off the hooshk, the line goes out t door. gun sales skyrocket. >> reporter: just outside the nation's capital in virginia, the ar-15 assault-style rifle is not the only item hard to keep in stock. high capacity magazines are selling fast too. the store's website warns customers last chance, due to uncertainty of obama's potential unilateral a

big debate playing out in washington over the obama administration's efforts to overhaul the nation's gun laws. we heard some of that this morning. here is the president addressing this issue during a white house news conference, we mentioned, moments ago. >> what you can count on is that the things that i've said in the past, the belief that we have to have stronger background checks, that we could do a much better job in terms of keeping these magazine clips with high capacity out of the hands of folks who shouldn't have them, an assault weapons ban that's meaningful that those are things i continue to believe make sense. >> megyn: new york senator chuck schumer is going a step further than the administration. now calling on wal-mart and other retailers to suspend sales of some types of weapons that are now perfectly legal until washington can come up with a new gun control policy. requests like that may be adding to the concern from gun owners as several gun shows around the country report record turnout. in fact, the president was asked about the growing number of gun sales. he
the debt ceiling? we're approaching that. we heard from the obama administration they have no backup plan if congress does not raise the debt ceiling, and the head of the house republican conference kathy mcmorris rogers says i think it's possible we should shut down the government to make sure the president understands we're serious. what do you think of that kind of talk? >> that's a terrible statement to make. shutting down government is different. now, we've got to be clear here. there's shutting down government in a budget fight. that's one thing. that's okay you can argue about that. the debt ceiling however is messing around with the full faith and credit of the united states. it would be bad for the economy when we played that game of russian roulette back in august of 2011. you could see the economy decline. you could see job creation going away. i'm with newt gingrich on this one. newt gingrich had taken a strong position that we should not use, that the republicans should not use the debt ceiling as leverage in this cutting spending. let's use the continuing
background checks. >>> and the debt ceiling debate is heating up, as well, with the obama administration insisting it won't negotiate with republicans on raising the ceiling. the white house says congress can either pay its bills or it can put the nation into default. reports suggest the government can run out of action to pay those bills as early as mid february. >>> and the creators of south park are setting up their own production studio. they've secured $2 million to set up a company called important stud wrote. the new studio will incorporate revenue from south park and the hit broadway play "the book of mormons." >>> and the ftse 100 closed up with a fresh 4 1/2 low on friday. we had a pupil by another market. but today, the xetra dax, cac 40 and the ibex, as well. shaking off that production data. take a look at what's on today's agenda in the u.s. fed chief ben bernanke will be speaking at the university of michigan later on. he'll discuss monetary policy, recovery from the financial crisis and is long-term challenges facing the u.s. economy. bernanke's xhnts will set the tone fo

to the food stamp issue that we have pursued with the obama administration where we ask them to test the experimental project where we limited the use of the food stamp benefits for the products that were clearly unhealthy and contributed to the obesity problem and higher health care costs was really more about health care and more about a health problem than a sort of concerted and meditated desire to influence people's behavior. the mayor is very devoted to and very committed to policies that improve the health outcomes of families for people in the city of new york. this is something he absolutely believe in and she fought hard for. fortunately the president and secretary of agriculture said no it isn't something they wanted to test or experiment with and see how it would work. but i don't know that at least from the bloomberg administration that that carries forward to the many, many other places or ways. we definitely want to encourage work. we think work is a key part of our individual lives and livelihood in the city and it ought to be a prerequisite to receiving public assist

control legislation. gun rights advocates say that the obama administration is looking to attack the second amendment they believe. but reverend jesse jackson told me moments ago that gun owners need to compromise. here he is now from our show just a little while ago, watch. >> you want guns to hunt with and it's registered you got that. a gun to protect your house, you got that. our more likely to end up shooting a relative and suicide than a roche. but guns for your house, you got that. these semi-automatic weapons, these assault weapons can only kill people and in fact they are threats to national security. martha: eric pratt is the director of communications at gun owners of america. eric, welcome. good to that you here this morning. >> thank you, martha, thank you for having me. martha: what is your response to what reverend jackson had to say there. >> would i tell him you don't compromise with god-given rights. americans in these countries use guns at a minimum of 4,000 times a day in self-defense, and that is according to clinton justice department figures. now we have th
think about the view of the obama administration towards the financial sector itself, and i can remember some comments like yeah, you're entitled to a profit but you're not entitled to this huge profit. i think the view of a lot of people in the administration have towards the financial sector, where it's almost seen as not a partner in growing the economy, but almost an impediment to it. do you think we're going to have another four years where they really don't understand how important it is for the financial sector to, you know, to grease the skids for the economy overall? >> well, you know, the regulatory pendulum and attitudes all swing. when there's a crisis it tends to sbing to conservative attitudes, to restraining attitudes and that's what we've seen. we saw it in the '30s, in the late 1980s, early 1990s. but it all always tends to moderate because the financial system is so critical to the well-being of the economy that over time one really has to have a moderate approach to the industry. that will come. now, i can't say that the pendulum has swung as far as it will go. there m
the community which feels a little bit alienated by the administration's first-term policies and mr. obama. but what they got is a guy -- not one of them, but does know the budget really well and the clearly the main challenge on the economic front for the first year is going to be on the fiscal front. insofar as jack lew has the trust of the president is in power to make deals, i would say that is is a positive. you do have to keep in mind he's not exactly the most trusted or liked person among republican on capitol hill. so that might actually make deal making a little bit rougher. >> jerry, what about all of these issues, you know, in washington. the debt ceiling fight that's on the horizon. is this going to impact the broad economy in the earning season, do you think? >> i guess this whole political thing is these are all the bricks in the wall of worry that equity markets are continuing to climb. you know, we know how to talk about these things, they're out there, in the media a lot. we follow them sometimes like a sport. maybe we exaggerate a little bit how much these political match
, reacting to this national tragedy that i think president obama has adequately described as broken all of our hearts, and in every funeral that has taken place, for those 20 innocent children and six innocent adults in the school districts, and school administrators, we obviously have shared in that very tragic event, all of us. it has touched everybody across this country. san francisco is no different. and i have shared that emotional experience with the supervisor and everybody here, in our law enforcement, and in our health department as well. the question for us, then, is what do we do about it? and
and establish obama's legacy." the co-authors are both former fcc officials. reed hundt is the former chairman of the fcc in the clinton administration, and blair levin spent many years there, most recently as part of their national broadband plan, the executive director. gentlemen, thanks for being on "the communicators." mr. hundt, your book's subtitle, how can technology fix the budget and help us over the so so-of called fiscal cliff? >> guest: well, it is a the subtitle. it's a bit of a mouthful, but the fundamental idea here is if you spend time in silicon valley, if you spend time in detroit where the automobile industry is being rebuilt, if you spend time outside the beltway, you feel that america has the potential to generate abundance for it own citizens and for the world. if you spend time only inside the beltway, it looks like a zero sum game, it looks like lose/lose, and who's going to lose the most is the gist of the negotiation. so what we tried to say in this book is or what are the lessons of the technology sector, what are the lessons that come from the optimism in the techno

president obama has adequately described as broken all of our hearts, and in every funeral that has taken place, for those 20 innocent children and six innocent adults in the school districts, and school administrators, we obviously have shared in that very tragic event, all of us. it has touched everybody across this country. san francisco is no different. and i have shared that emotional experience with the supervisor and everybody here, in our law enforcement, and in our health department as well. the question for us, then, is what do we do about it? and not only can we share in this tragedy and signal our sympathies to the families as we've done, but we've got to do something more. and this is where i want to make sure i recognize all of the people that are in that effort of doing something about it, including the officials in san francisco. and some have been at this longer than others to try to do something about it, have reached limitations. yet again, i think this tragedy at sandy hook reminds us that we've got to keep trying and we've got to keep doing more about it. and, so, i w
after this administration is gone, those supreme court justices are going to be there shaping the laws of this country. and who did president obama pick? not one but two women. long after he's gone out of the white house those two women, those two appointees will be there. so this conversation about the president not being in support of diversity, the same person who pushed forward the overturning of don't ask, don't tell which affected, by the way, more women than men and more black women than white women, it's just -- to me it's just a silly conversation to be having. >> lz, anna, we have to leave it there. thanks for joining us. >>> here is something that may prompt you to take a deeper breath. look at this. how do you even function with this kind of pollution? we're going to tell you where that is next. this week get a bonus $15 itunes gift card with any qualifying $75 ink purchase. find thousands of big deals now... at officemax. i've got two tickets to paradise!l set? pack your bags, we'll leave tonight. black women than white women, this kind of pollution? no four. remember? who
'll be talking about the proposals that he wants to push. there's been some signs that the administration may not vigorously push for that assault weapons ban, that we know president obama, at least in principle, supports, but politically would be a very difficult lift for congress. he sort of sidestepped whether that was something that he was going to move forward, but said that there's a list of common sense proposals. and finally, wolf, he was asked just one question about this criticism that he's received recently, because of his top cabinet picks, really lacking diversity, being all white men, not enough women. among them, he said, stay tuned for the other picks in his cabinet, that he thinks in the end, he will have continued his tradition of having women in the white house, in the white house and also on his cabinet. but for right now, some of that criticism still does persist, wolf. >> it does, indeed. brianna, stand by. john king, the president said if the republicans don't go along, social security recipients, their checks will go away, veterans' benefits will go away, inspector who
